Since then, Matt has appeared on various media outlets and talk shows (i.e. The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Live with Regis & Kelly).

Youve got a frined

You’ve Got A Friend  The music of Carole King and James Taylor

A genuinely moving, nostalgic concert performance -  the music and legacy of Carole King and James Taylor.  Two long-time friends and collaborators hit songwriter, Kirsti Manna (Blake Shelton’s ‘Austin’, among others) and national recording artist, Jonathan Birchfield, capture the essence of friendship through music with their dynamic performances. 

Audiences have long enjoyed Kirsti’s unique artistry on piano and vocals and Jonathan’s velvet-toned vocals and guitar.  Both artists have frequently been stylistically compared to Carole King and James Taylor. Now, with the same amazing onstage chemistry as those superstars, they take their audiences back in time with favorites like “How Sweet It Is,” “Carolina in My Mind,” “I Feel the Earth Move,” and of course, the incomparable, “You’ve Got a Friend.”

Rich Eddy’s Rockin Oldies

With our ability to play multiple instruments, and our knowledge of the latest advancements in musical technology, “Rich Eddy’s Rockin’ Oldies Band” is a little bitty with a long name that delivers a big band sound & show.

How did we come up with the name Rich Eddy? Well, we thought that Eddy was a real cool name and we idolize the legendary guitarist, Duane Eddy. Rockin Oldies is what we do. We always thought we would love to be rich, hence the name, "Rich Eddy's Rockin' Oldies Band".
